i know everyone has been sitting around wondering what to get me for christmasPhoto Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucketso i figure i make it easy for you.the pink floyd box set.

It's with pleasure that we are finally able to bring you some proper news on the much-speculated on, upcoming "Pink Floyd Mini-Vinyl Studio Box Set"!

The set has been rumoured for some time, and various sites have posted information on it with varying degrees of accuracy, but we've just been given the official "nod" to reveal certain details to you of what will surely be on many peoples' Christmas present lists, including the confirmed release date and ordering details.

With not just the studio albums inside Storm Thorgerson's specially designed box, even those who have the entire back catalogue with find something of interest.

The main meat of the box set is the entire Pink Floyd studio album catalogue packaged as mini-vinyl reproductions all in one CD box set - much like the highly limited Japanese album replicas from a few years ago which now command high amounts on eBay!

You'll get:

* The Piper At The Gates Of Dawn
* A Saucerful Of Secrets
* More
* Ummagumma (2 CD)
* Atom Heart Mother
* Meddle
* Obscured By Clouds
* The Dark Side Of The Moon
* Wish You Were Here
* Animals
* The Wall (2 CD)
* The Final Cut
* A Momentary Lapse Of Reason
* The Division Bell


Each CD is a faithful reproduction of the original vinyl using original artwork, all the original inserts (posters, stickers, and the like) and LP-style dust jackets. We also understand that there will be an 20" x 30" high quality poster included.

In addition, there will be a DVD in the box, which looks to feature the individual members of the band discussing the 40th anniversary and landmarks in their career. There may be some musical content also in the DVD, but like the box set as a whole, some details of the DVD are still to be decided on and an official announcement should be made soon once every element of the box set is cast in stone.

Finally, that all important release date. The band's manager told us last night that this is currently looking to be December 3rd with the normal variations around the world - for example, the USA is December 4th.

The perfect way to fill all those gaps in your collection, or for those who are yet to get the majority of the studio albums. With the DVD, and the very special presentation of the set, this collection (which we hear is limited to 10,000 worldwide) should sell quickly.Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at PhotobucketPhoto Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket feel free to contact dancin bear for my mailing addressPhoto Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

Since you're always so generous in sharing all those great pics you post, I'm reaching for the check book to buy it for you. Woops-almost forgot that I don't have a bank account.

Okay, I'll pull out my Capitol One card. Uh-oh---what's in MY wallet? Zilch.

Tell ya' what---buy the box for yourself and I promise not to nag you to put up more shots of the naked backsides of beautiful women with classic album cover artwork reproductions stretching down to their asses.

OK, not on my Xmas list due to more pragmatic needs at the moment, but I do admire your choice of photos.
I've never been to Burning Man, but with this post,I'm distracted by the thought of it...

what a pleasantly surprising post tigerbolt, i will never forget my mescaline adventures at the floyd shows.

my brother and i bought their first box set that came out in 1991 or 92, this was a sweet one too, all the tunes and a cool book. if my memory serves me right, i think it was called, "shine on." it was $120 -- a big investment for us back then.

* how much do you think this one will cost? i'd actually pay some cash for it, i think. maybe i am just feeling like being santa to myself. i think i owe everyone on here one of these box sets...
